He’s Just Not That Into You (2009)

June 2, 2009

3/10 “Dear John” Tweets

Is this movie supposed to make women feel better about themselves or something? I don’t know, maybe it’s because I’m a guy and I have a great girlfriend that I am into, but I don’t get it.

He’s Just Not That Into You is about a slew of various asshole guys who aren’t into various women for various reasons and the discouraged women on the other end who can’t understand why these assholes aren’t into them. How profound.

It’s a movie based off a relationship advice book which is devoid of story, so the writers just kind of whipped one up I guess. As a result, the movie plays out like it was written in bullet points and you don’t really end up caring for any of the characters involved.

The acting is incredibly meh, proving once more that just because there’s six thousand famous people in it doesn’t mean it’s going to be good. Unfortunately for the cast, the funniest part came when Drew Barrymore got dumped by yet another asshole guy and someone in the movie theater took it upon himself to inform Drew that she just got “BURNED!” Don’t remember laughing otherwise. When all is said and done, He’s Just Not That Into You isn’t one of those things you’d be likely to ever revisit after one viewing.

It has a couple decent points about relationships, but like I said, none of it will really boost your self-esteem in any way either. The morals of the movie boil down to a few choice things that get repeated many a time: if a guy likes you he’ll make it damn clear that he does, don’t be psycho, and don’t cheat on your significant other, just don’t do it. Boom, just saved you two hours.

Girls, if you like reading Cosmo, this is probably right up your alley. Guys, unless you have a closet obsession with reading your girlfriend’s Cosmo when she’s not around, then you won’t like this.  

He’s Just Not That Into You doesn’t have anything all that new to say about relationships and unless you’re going to see this on your next ladies night, I’d suggest reading the book instead.
